Abstract:
Magnet re-designation challenges our nurse leaders and staff nurses to reconfirm our commitment to nursing excellence through the valuing of each nurses role and the nurturing of accountability. This year our medical center celebrates three decades of shared decision making, mentorship, innovation and autonomy. Over 2,300 nurses set nursing practice standards and establish operational systems and processes that support efficient, effective, safe patient care. Our current shared governance model, which is overseen by the Professional Nursing Council (PNC), is structured through the use of five sub-councils and co-led by a staff nurse and advanced practice nurse, with advisement from a senior nurse administrator. The model supports and reinforces the desired characteristics of Magnet hospitals and promotes active involvement of all nurses in decision-making and planning. The staff nurse chair and vice-chair of the PNC are allocated 30 hours weekly to accomplish the work of the council The measurable successes of our shared governance model are dependent upon an environment of engagement, participation and nurse satisfaction. Since the models implementation, patient satisfaction scores and nurse satisfaction scores have increased and our innovative programs continue to support activities designed to influence engagement and satisfaction. The attendance at PNC meetings also has increased from 23% to 54%, indicating increased interest in the work of the group and commitment to the shared governance process. The Councils visibility has increased significantly and the work of the Council has resulted in both tangible and intangible effect.
